I kept mine at 10 and then reset after it was up and running.

I kept my timing at whatever it was set at. I'm assuming it was 10 because I never changed it. The Link's timing map starts at 0 so you will be running your current timing plus the Link's setting. My car pinged a little. That's OK because the car is not under any load. Get your car up to idle temperature. Back your timing off to 10 degrees using the marking on your crankcase just like you would set it any other time. I can email you the instructions if you like.
